Notes for owners, trainers, drivers and officials
Please note: Due to having 18 races plus Qualifiers, and the fact that many have a long journey home, the start time of the first race has been brought forward to 1:00 PM.
DECLARATIONS WILL CLOSE AT 12:00 PROMPT.
The lorry park and paddock are now situated in the ‘old’ area (ie. In the field on the left as you come in, rather than round the other side of the track where it has been for all recent meetings).
Declarations and Number cloths will be in the PADDOCK there. No number cloths will be issued without a ticket;
12:00 – 12:15 Draw takes place at the commentary point.
12:20 – QUALIFIERS
1:00 – First Race. Subsequent races follow at 20 minutes intervals. We need to get through 3 races per hour to stay on schedule, so co-operation in getting horses ready and in the paddock on time will be greatly appreciated.

Weather and track conditions
Currently forecast to be dry overnight, sunny morning with showers creeping in later. (BBC 24 hr forecast). Looks like we may have some rain during the afternoon (please nail ‘em up – farrier available on course) but not too bad!
The track is in good condition as it stands, and there are no plans or reason to inspect barring unexpected circumstances.
Warming up on the OUTSIDE of the track can take place in the morning 10:00 – 12:00 but NOT during the short interval around 4:00 – sorry.
Hope this helps and that you all have a good day at Tan y Castell.
